Raz Simone is a hip-hop artist from Seattle, Washington. His inspiration stems from his diverse life, as opposed to any musical predecessors. Growing up Raz did not listen to any music. It wasn't until he started writing poetry, then speaking his powerful words over movie scores that he realized he was rapping.
Mixing creative foresight with entrepreneurial spirit, Raz produces, raps, sings, designs graphics and directs videos all under his independent label, Black Umbrella.
In 2014 Raz released 'Cognitive Dissonance: Part 1', then followed up at the start of 2015 with 'Cognitive Dissonance: Part 2', which is now available for free download on https://www.razsimone.com/.
